Tired of boring old squares and rectangles? How about adding some cool hex-based mats to your next game? These invader mats are designed to help you build dynamic hex-map games. Each mat contains 13 one inch hexes.



Invader mats are printed nine to a sheet and cost just 30 cents each. Download the template at https://community.thegamecrafter.com/publish/templates/mats/... and get started today. Enjoy!

So 13 1 inch hexes. the "1 inch" being from 1 point/vertex to its opposite?

Just wanting clarification because I was contemplating using your wood tokens with stickers as an alternative to stickers on wooden blocks (since TGC doesn't offer 20mm x 20mm x 10mm blocks from what I can see).

However the wood token chips are diameter of 1.26 inches so they would overlap any of the individual hexes by a small but annoying noticeable amount.

If I am correct then I can't use TGC for my project.

Hi Blair,

Yep, the 1 inch is measured from vertex to vertex. All hexes are measured by vertex. I'm sorry to hear that the token chips won't work out for you and hopefully you can either come up with a workaround or we'll have new parts in the future that will accommodate your needs better. Thanks!

Yeah if stickerable wooden blocks or smaller tokens become available I will use TGC. I may also look into using the jumbo cards for hexes. Looking into my options.

Thanks for the response!

No problem, I'm happy to help. If you're in need of hex options, we have a few to consider:

Small Hex Tiles:
https://community.thegamecrafter.com/publish/templates/tiles...

Large Hex Tiles:
https://community.thegamecrafter.com/publish/templates/tiles...

Hex Cards:
https://community.thegamecrafter.com/publish/templates/cards...

I'm guessing you're already aware of these options but I figured it wouldn't hurt to take a moment and pass them along.

We know we don't offer every custom option, but we continue to add components that are generically useful for a large audience of game designers. If you have specific ideas/suggestions, be sure to take a moment and let us know on our Ideas forum at https://community.thegamecrafter.com/forums/ideas. This is a worthwhile endeavor because our team looks at all requests and tries to provide solutions for commonly requested items.

Happy designing and hopefully you can make something work!

Thanks Tavis. I will head to your Idea forum as soon as I can. The reason why individual tiles won't work is because I have them grouped up, kinda like WarCraft The Board Game and more recently, Hegemonic. So I'll keep thinking about ways I can go about doing this.

Thank you for your response!
